You know Millen will make any trade that doesn't benefit his team. Rogers has had some conditioning issues, but would a change of scenery like the Texans help turn that around? If he regains his old form, we'd have the best DL in the NFL. Would you make the deal? http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080223/SPORTS0101/802230423/1126 The trade drums are beating louder for Lions nose tackle Shaun Rogers. The question no longer seems to be whether the Lions will trade him, but when they will make a deal........ ........It remains to be seen what the Lions can get in return for Rogers, who has played seven seasons in Detroit and made the NFC Pro Bowl twice (2004 and '05). The perception has changed slightly this year on the value of getting draft choices in trades. Last year, a first-day pick was anything on the first three rounds. This year, there are two rounds on the first day. The second day begins with the third round. President Matt Millen was asked Friday if he wanted a starter in return for Rogers. "It depends," Millen said. "You can get a starter with a pick."........ .........The issues with Rogers are well known. He has immense talent and can be a dominating player when he's on his game. However, poor physical conditioning has kept him from playing at his peak. He played well for the first eight games last year, then tailed off badly. "We can look at the negative things," Marinelli said. "You look at his full season, he had a decent year." The free-agent signing period begins Friday. There would be some benefit to the Lions to know where the defensive line stands before they hit the market.
